Bringing IT Consulting up through the clouds!
The challenge for modern day business is ensuring “old School” applications or processes don’t remain the norm. Rather we should be focused on working with alternative flexible often leading-edge cloud related solutions. These often require the business to be agile in it’s approach to delivery. We bring these options to the forefront as we engage in our executive led business support.
Most large corporations need to transform their business to meet ever changing market conditions. The key to successful transformation is selecting the areas the business needs changing and then sourcing the “right” leadership to help deliver it.
Corporate level Change Programmes often require substantial interaction between multiple separate dependant workstreams which need to be carefully ‘dovetailed’ while integrating them. This skill frequently known as “political manoeuvring” needs ensuring executive stakeholders are fully appraised.
Outsourcing or not!
Frequently, the biggest failure with corporate decisions on outsourcing is not actually understand their customer whom use the services, and not addressing their customer satisfaction requirements. Outsourcing has many flavours – so it’s about choosing the right one, the right geographic location and the right type of outsource that’s pivotal.
Hiring the “old guys” to get the job done !
The term “Hiring the Old-Guy” in our context loosely describes the people or a person that we bring to the table and engage in your business. They bring many years of ‘lessons learned’ and experience you just cannot gain from sitting in a classroom. It’s past mistakes that these lessons come from that ensure we deliver “right” choices for your business change environment and prevent ‘bad decisions’ from being repeated. We can introduce experience into your programme, most whom have held VP level roles in large global organisations, that’s our “VALUE ADD”!
Cost of IT Change !
The hidden cost in today’s world of IT Transformation and Business Change is not only the obvious vendor negotiation, but more about considering the type of operational change to enhancement of your business. The biggest leakage we come across is Programme scope creep and mismanaged resourcing requirements.
REMEMBER: Using smaller niche and agile consultants can be greatly beneficial, as we don’t produce heaps of documents to lure more business, we just deliver. So don’t always assume the large global “Big-5 Five” Management Consultants are your only option. Most often they are not.

Our Approach to a Successful Delivery
The approach that’s best for the client is up to the client but in getting there the most effective solution is engaging an open and frank dialogue so we best understand the business end result. This process will ensure you get clear objectives to be met, which provides a successful delivery.
The engagement model should always be assessed against agreed and achievable milestones – all of which will be set against timescale and associated quotations – We typically engage in medium term engagements (9 to 12 months and beyond) which enable a true reflection on deliverables as global transformational programmes typically do not deliver board level business benefits in short assignments of less than 6 months.
Wide ranging assignments from pure global leadership of multi-workstream, matrix managed delivery to coordinate IT technology refresh – on time and within budget.
Business often get bogged down with marketing hype around the rights and wrongs of outsourcing. We can put many business critical options on the table, from location, to modeling like Build/ Operate / Transfer – including the geo-locations that will benefit your business as required.
